Lafayette's Music Room Memphis
The original Lafayette’s Music Room was short-lived but still vividly remembered. During the 1970s, it was a small but influential venue rooted in the most happening corridor of Memphis. A key stop on the showcase circuit for up-and-coming touring artists, Lafayette’s played a significant role in launching the careers of such music superstars as Billy Joel, Big Star, KISS, Barry Manilow, J.J. Cale and Leon Russell, to name a few.
Today’s Lafayette’s Restaurant and Bar evokes that storied past. It boasts live bands seven nights a week, from local and touring acts playing rock ‘n roll to jazz to blues and everything in between.

We are here regularly. Live music, service and food are excellent.
Music is always fabulous and great selection of food with fabulous patio options.
The service here is always great! The music and food are always on point as well!
1st time there and my guest and I enjoyed ourselves, especially the band!
We always have a great experience ❤️
Band was not that good. Seating barely allowed for social distancing. We had to asked to be moved twice because they kept seating people directly next to us. However, the food was great.
Band was Fantastic, very crowded ~ service was adequate, food was great! Glad we made reservations!
The vibe was fresh and upbeat. The food was simple and delicious. The high seating was a nice change.
Redfish taco amazing! Great melon ceviche and Mac n cheese!
Love the food and the music!
The food was excellent. I will definitely return.
We had a great time! Everyone was responsible and having a blast. Seeing Red is the best!
I love the ambiance and service every time I come to LaFayette’s!! It’s one of my most favorite places to visit in Memphis!
Reservations was great. Setting was good along with service and the food. We enjoyed.
We saw a live band play would highly Recommend to anyone looking for a good venue for an event.
Love Lafayettes! Great venue, great music, great service, and the staff in awesome!
Great food and service!!! Would definitely eat there again! Try the BBQ shrimp with Abita bread!!!
I love Lafayette Music Room. The staff and food is amazing. The food and drinks are reasonable priced. The have plenty of food options.
It was very busy as “Almost Elton” was preforming. “Almost Elton” is a must see act! Jerred is wonderful as are all of his musicians. The place was packed. Servers wore masks but all the patrons were mask free and I did get concerned. It’s unfortunate that our reality is now about masks. Anyway, the food was good but the kitchen made 2 errors. They took care of the mistakes quickly...I give them a “hall pass” because it was packed and they likely haven’t been that busy in months.
It was great to be back at Lafayette's Music Room on Sunday evening. Our server, Adrienne was very pleasant and offered excellent service. It was also a great surprise to hear Steve Hopper entertain. He is a guaranteed good time for all! Gale Martz
Server and food were great, but none of the reservation seating requests for a high top were granted. Neither was our request for outdoor seating and we were told we'd have to wait beyond our reservation time if we wanted to dine outside. Disappointing for the guest of honor who was also not acknowledged as noted in our reservation.
Great food, music and company
Great place for good live music and a quality meal.
Great food! Our server was excellent. They were very careful to follow all of the COVID rules. We got to hear really great LIVE MUSIC provided by the School of Rock Germantown and that was a thrill! They were very good and were were super excited to actually be out to dinner and hear music....it almost felt like pre-covid times. Thank you!!!!!
We had a great time and loved the School of Rock Memphis houseband!!
Cajun Crawdad Pizza is the best! Great food and great atmosphere.
Ladies night was amazing! Just friends getting together to unwind...
The food, the music and the service we’re all great as usual at Lafayette’s . I would absolutely recommend to anyone!
Adrian was an awesome server. Lettuce wraps were great. And the band was awesome as always.
Can't wait to go back!
Everything was wonderful, only issue was zero social distancing.
Food was great. Service was fabulous! Great music too!!
Wonderful brunch, seating immediately upon walking in. Sat on downstairs patio area, had wonderful service. $5 mimosa were great!
Excellent food and service as always!!
We really enjoyed the visit. Margaritas are a little on the sweet side though.
Fathers Day Dinner
This place was great! We had 2 kids with us so the live music was awesome. The kids danced while the adults enjoyed their drinks. The only downside is you can't sit with more than 4 people on the patio... so we were forced to eat inside.
Seeing Red was amazing!! The service was just a little slow. Overall awesome first night out in awhile!!
Food and service was fantastic! Almost Famous rocked!
